Anonymous asked: So, regarding the whole 'you can't be sexist/racist towards men/white people' thing - do these people seriously believe that by somehow prohibiting a morally repugnant action from being described with a certain word, that that action will then be magically justified? That somehow our perception of right and wrong stems from vocabulary? I've nothing to really ask here, it just boggles my mind. Anyway, I like your blog, do keep up the good work!

It boggles my mind too. Thanks for the support though, anon!

LEGION BY BRANDON SANDERSON

Ah, so what is that boring book cover you may ask? This book is brilliant! I’ve read this book a while ago (months? years?), and somehow it crossed my mind this morning… And I was like ‘Avery!’ (well those don’t know her might be weirded out, but Ave is a friend of mine. I keep thinking ‘this book is so you! You should read it!’ but alas, I didn’t talk to her :P

So what is this book about? Well first it’s a short story, you can finish it in a few hours, so EVERYONE should give it a go! (hahaha).

The blurb from the back cover:

"Stephen Leeds, AKA “Legion,” is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his “aspects” are drawn into the search…"

Well you can read the rest of the blurb HERE.

To be truthful the blurb is boring. But the book is not! Brandon Sanderson is a genius with plots and twist. I think that’s the idea of the boring blurb, so you’d be taken away with the story (though that couldn’t be said to many author).

When you read it… You may think that the author misrepresent schi.zo, or DI.D. I guess those who got butthurt by things like this well… Might get butthurt. But read on! As I said, the man is a genius with plots and twists. Hint: piecesunfolding (the name is already a hint in itself).

johnzain, I think this book is up your alley.

piecesunfolding, you totally should read it! I think you can relate to it at some level.

If someone is looking a good book with someone with ‘special mental condition’… This is the book. It even said so in the blurb. I’m not making it up. Hallucination, ‘aspects’ that have their own peculiarities, this is it. I’m rereading it right now, and I don’t remember much to say, so I’m not sure if I should say (because I obviously have read it all) that the man suffer from mental illness. More of… Mental condition.

Can’t say anything to spoil the book, but… Read it. piecesunfolding, I can’t recommend you enough! Totally, totally should read it.

And really, before you get turned off because you think the author might misrepresent mental illness, do yourself a favor and read the book first before blindly accusing him.

Cool, I’ll check it out!!
